Creative Journey Outcome: Success!

“Path” Creativity Journey Day 27 of 40

It’s been over 6 weeks since my 40-day Creative Journey ended. Although I’ve seen changes, I wasn’t convinced much big had happened, until this morning, when I woke up excited to start my day. This is a big deal to me, actually a huge deal, after years of low mood issues.

I’m still following a morning routine, aka “alignment practice,” as follows:

  1. Meditating 15 minutes.
  2. Enjoying a “single-task” cup of coffee.
  3. Doing a few minutes of stretches while the coffee brews.
  4. Drawing for 30 minutes.
  5. Meditating for 20 minutes more.

I also take a walk for at least 25 minutes (almost) every day, although not always in the morning. It feels great to be consistent with some self-care items (meditating, exercise) and creating more polished drawings (perhaps over several days) for new designs.

Now, here’s a small sample of the positive results from my 40-day Creative Journey and beyond. I’ve been:

  1. Eating much healthier,
  2. Walking consistently as mentioned above,
  3. Getting my house slowly and steadily neater and cleaner,
  4. Approaching each day and week in a more organized way,
  5. Feeling more confident about my designs,
  6. Making steady progress toward creating new designs,
  7. Feeling more productive each week, and
  8. Waking up feeling better and better each morning.

Perhaps I’ll go more into detail about this at some point. For now, thanks for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying your own journey today.
